barrett hamilton

Elliot has been working in the casework manufacturing industry for the past 15 years with a breadth of experience encompassing design, marketing, sales, engineering, catalog creation, project management, manufacturing, and implementation. 


His early career as a GC/builder and developer inform his implementation strategies and streamlining procedures.

He's a passionate chef and most nights you'll find him experimenting in the kitchen with his girlfriend, Kelly, in Denver's Highland Square.

Barrett leads the construction and fabrication of all HJK projects. He has been working in the building industry for over 20 years, beginning as a carpentry apprentice with his father’s contracting company back in Lawrence, Kansas. 


He built a successful contracting business in Brooklyn where he focused on high-end brownstone remodels.


Barrett has worked as a builder throughout the United States and as far away as New Zealand.  He lives in Edgewater with his wife, Katy, and their ridiculously cute son, Ryland.

emma mooney

Emma is our Client Services Manager and Design Assistant. She's been part of the Harlan Jasper team, circuitously, from the very beginning, as Kelly's real estate client services manager

at @bestproperties.


When she decided to refocus her energy on her life-long love of design, she was a natural fit.

She has a background in art history and fashion merchandising, with a keen eye for timeless style and a true passion for customer service.

Emma lives in Sunnyside with her boyfriend, HJK's very own Kent Claridge, and their adorably feisty pup, Georgie.

kelly reed

Kelly heads up HJJ's design, development, and marketing. She utilizes her background in visual arts and years of experience in interior design and real estate in NYC, LA, London, and Denver to curate a relevant and exciting aesthetic.

She's determined to bring a female voice to the casework industry and close the gap between designer, client, and manufacturing.

She lives in the Highlands with her boyfriend Elliot and their huge, derpy golden retriever, Larry.


lori platte

Lori’s passion for Kitchen and Bath Design began with the remodel of her first home. And, three homes after that...she was hooked!

Lori has an Interior Design degree from Arapahoe Community College and an AKBD certification. More importantly, she designs beautiful, functional spaces and loves helping clients realize their vision of a truly special, custom kitchen and bath.

Lori has traveled extensively, both domestically and abroad, finding inspiration along the way. She lives in West Highlands and enjoys her garden, cooking, and wine with friends on her chic, mod patio.

David is from Strasburg, Pennsylvania and studied at Colorado State and Morehead state. With three national championships for cheerleading, two tours on Broadway, and 3 years as a Denver Nuggets cheerleader under his belt, you’re wondering how he fits at Harlan Jasper, right? 


Well, pretty it’s simple, actually. David Is incredibly disciplined, a perfectionist, and customer-service driven. He loves working with his hands and learning new skills -- plus,  he's clearly very coordinated and physically adept!


When he’s not at the shop or on a job site, he’s at his place off of the 16th Street Mall, climbing, staying fit at the gym, or traveling as a cheer instructor.

Originally a Colorado native, Kent learned carpentry, construction, and more while living in Massachusetts, before moving back to his home state to start his own contracting business.


He is passionate about high design and excellent craftsmanship, making sure every detail of HJK projects is attended to. We can always count on Kent to problem solve and do things right.


Kent has been an avid rock climber for almost a decade and is always seeking out new summits. His house in Sunnyside is a full one — he lives with his girlfriend Emma, best friends, their toddler, and two pups.

Ryan truly is meant for this business. He went to school for carpentry and wood tech at Western Wisconsin Technical College and moved to Colorado in 2002 search of powder.

He is a perfectionist in the shop. If you need to know where something is, how it works, and how to fix it - Ryan's your man. He loves the creative process, working with his hands, and creating functional, innovative projects.

When he's not keeping the shop rolling, he's fishing, snowboarding, and hanging with his kids, Mia and Parker, and girlfriend, Shannon.

Larry is a 1.5 year old 100 lb ball of joy and friendship, aka an English Cream Golden Retriever. When we needed a General Manager, Larry was the obvious choice -- he wants to be best pals with absolutely everyone and isn't afraid of a long day of work (even if he spends 97% of it lying down).


Larry's favorite activities include reppin' Harlan Jasper, eating broccoli, and playing with his squirrel friends. When he's not on the job, Larry can be found sleeping horizontally in Kelly and Elliot's bed.

Georgie is a 1.5 year old 13lb Chihuahua mix with a zero-tolerance policy for strangers. She pretty much appointed herself Head of Security at Harlan Jasper, and we brokered no arguments -- she's got a stringent vetting process, and even though approval mostly depends on how many treats you're willing to give her, she keeps us all safe.


Her favorite activities include barking, barking, and barking. When she's not on the job, Georige can be found playing with (aka beating up) her best dog friend, Oliver, or aggressively snuggling her mom (Emma) and dad (Kent).

Lionel, a Portuguese Water Dog born in April 2020, is the baby of the Harlan Jasper family.


Since he's a tiny flop of a pup, he was the perfect choice for Head of Maintenance -- his fur keeps our shop tidy, much to the chagrin of his dad, Barrett. Lionel loves prancing, bounding, snacking, napping, chewing, and hanging with his pal Larry.


When he’s not on the job, Lionel can be found adventuring with his human brother, 3 year-old Ryland.
